Want This: Recycled School Supplies

Going green is totally en vogue these days and what better way to embrace the movement than with recycled school supplies? From pens and notebooks to laptop accessories, your Barnes & Noble College bookstore has everything you need for a green start this fall.


Ranging in price from $1.98 to $5.98, these notebooks are sure to fit your style – and budget – this fall.



Recycled Notebooks & Portfolios

Whatever your needs are for class, you can find a notebook or portfolio to feel good about. The New Leaf Reflections collection includes 2-pocket portfolios made of 80% recycled paper and 100 sheet composition notebooks, which contain 100% recycled paper and 95% post-consumer waste. The earth tone color palette makes the notebooks a perfect complement for the crisp fall days to come.



The B2P Gel Roller is one “write” way to go green.



From Water Bottle to Pen

“Bottle-2-Pen” or B2P pens take the concept of going green to a whole new level – they are actually made from old plastic bottles! The pens are composed of 89.9% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles and are the first pens made from such material. These gel rollers retail for just $2.98 and can be found at select campus bookstores.



Protect your laptop as you trek around campus with a neoprene laptop sleeve, starting at $24.98.



Laptop Sleeves

Not only do recycled bottles make great pens – they make laptop sleeves, too! The fabric on the inside of these Neoprene Laptop Sleeves is composed of 100% recycled plastic bottles and the outside is waterproof so you never have to worry about spills during a study session. Better yet, ‘neogreene’ is water-based and has zero harmful toxins or chemicals.  Plus, 25% less petroleum and energy is used to make them, so pick one up today!
